Surphase & Rktic - Norddeutsch EP [THN040]


Published October 7, 2003


Rktic aka Ronny Pries and Marko Fürstenberg aka Surphase are longtime musicians who share a strong passion for electronic dub. Both already proved with a bunch of own releases on Thinner how to create clubby dubtech tracks that work in every club. The "Norddeutsch EP" has been produced a while ago when Surphase spent time in Northeast Germany. Rktic himself is a native Hamburgian ever since, so the geographical proximity allowed a characterizing topic for their collaboration. And the tracks themselves just sound like there's no doubt the music couldn't be else then from the North. What we hear are four cold techdubs with a sharp and fresh breeze, easy to utilize down in the club for every MP3 DJ. Tracks wearing classical cutoff stabs, deep basslines and tough bassdrums. This one should please the people that cant get enough of dubby shifted phasing chords, delays and closed hihats. This EP is definitely proper material that comes from a tight pre-and postproduction.



Press Reviews



Endlich mal wieder Tracks auf Thinner die richtig rocken. Locker aus der Hüfte geschossene Vibes mit dem nötigen Thrill, die schieben und schieben. Verantwortlich dafür sind Techno-Sause-Mann Ronny Pries von Rohformat und Marko Fürstenberg alias Surphase. Lange fehlte so ein konkretes Release auf Thinner. Unter den Synonymen Rktic und Surphase bieten die beiden Musiker so richtig feine Club-Tunes, die nicht daddeln, sondern die Clubber auf die Tanzfläche ziehen. Zwar sind es 'nur' Tools, dafür aber so richtig gute. Zusammen mit dem intensiven Percussion-Einsatz, euphorischen Chords und kleinen Remiszenzen an alte Tage shuffelt sich das Duo durch die Tracks wie seinerzeit Hardfloor. Klasse deftig-melodiöse Groove-Monster. Mehr davon!

Subject: Stupendously good
A stupendously good release from a netlabel that manages to release a seamingly neverending stream of good releases. This however, is stellar. Everything fits here, and from the first stomper we're gradually released into the more dubby land of things, and this release grabs me and doesn't let me go until the last track. Get this, it's excellent.
